Lilac Stems and Butterflies
My sweet friend Lori (LMcAree) sent me some lilac Flower Soft for Christmas and I wanted to try it out. Thanks, Lori! Fun stuff!!
The stamps are from my Butterfly Happiness set from There She Goes. I like how the stem silhouette matches up with the Creative Memories DP...that I've had in my stash forEVER!
The stem was stamped in Perfect Plum ink onto white CS, then I added the lilac Flower Soft to the buds. The butterflies were stamped in Perfect Plum ink onto white CS, punched out with a 1-1/4" circle punch, and matted against 1-3/8" Perfect Plum Circles. The butterflies were then stamped again in Perfect Plum onto Pale Plum CS, cut out, and popped up on Dimensionals over the ones stamped on the white circles. The Perfect Plum circles with the butterflies are also up on Dimensionals.
The punched circles on the inside of the card are glued down flat and the butterfly is up on Dimensionals.
The layout is from Jen Del Muro and you can see the sketch HERE. I love her awesome layouts!
